Iconic landmark

The new patient ho­tel in Tromsø is a iconic land­mark build­ing for both the hos­pi­tal and the city, in­cor­po­rat­ing 210 ho­tel rooms and a restau­rant area.

The user in focus

The vi­sion is to cre­ate a well-func­tion­ing pa­tient ho­tel, a good place to stay for both pa­tients and their fam­i­lies, and an ideal working environment for em­ploy­ees. The ho­tel will serve as a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the uni­ver­sity and the hos­pi­tal.

Analysing the site

The team analysed all aspects of the site before designing the building.
